A Home for the Abused

Everyone needs a place of their own.    

Temporary book bags and pack sacks are fine for a time, but sooner or later you need a place to call home.  And if it can be among friends, so much the better. 

So we were delighted when Popular Woodworking came up with a Victorian Side Table for the “I Can Do That” project for November.   


Constructed with recycled wood and finished with amber shellac and wax, it became just the spot for us to hang our proverbial hats.                                                                        

No more lying in piles on the floor, getting kicked about by stumbling buffoons heading for their favorite chair, or crashing off the kitchen table when dinner clearing would roar into full swing.  Finally we can get a little dignity, a little respect, and a little R & R for our aging spines.    

Believe me, the way things were starting to look around here, it wasn’t any too soon in coming.
